"The First Amendment doesn't use the word 'journalism' and it doesn't apply only to journalists. The First Amendment protects anyone who publishes information, regardless of whether they carry the mantle of journalism," she ["Elizabeth Goitein, who co-directs the Liberty and National Security Program at the Brennan Center in New York"] said.
She's absolutely right about that. What's more, nothing WikiLeaks published should have remained secret. In fact, what WikiLeaks published needed to be published so the People could see the illegalities being done by the so-called government of the People. What the People need to do is throw the bums out (the plutocrats' minions). They need to clear the house. They need a clean sweep. They need to ordain and establish what they've never had: national full-democracy, transparency and all!
